At last… we can start our trip. All school holidays are finished, it is Sunday morning. The traffic is reasonable. Near Offenburg we change to the French side of the Rhine. Belfort, Besancon and along the banks of the River Doubs to Orchamps. Quite often we stayed here for the night, the distance to Weinheim is just fine for a day. For the campground we are always either too early or too late – perhaps it doesn’t open at all. The village looks deserted, most of the windows are closed and every third house has a sign “a vendre”. I would also move by the immense traffic rushing through this village! But between river and canal it is quiet and idyllic, always good for one night.
